“If Carlsberg made dog food...”
I am hobby breeder with over 13 years experience breeding dogs. We always get great comments from vets as to the condition our puppies are in at 8 weeks old when they have gone off to their new homes and visited the new owners vet. It is nice to see ongoing innovation with the introduction of new products and although the market is becoming crowded Akela more than holds it own.
“Excellent food, terrible packaging ”
We love Akela, from their dry 80/20 kibble, their natural treats and their frozen raw range. Our dogs look and feel great. We order on a very regular basis as it the only food we would feed our dogs.
One thing that could be changed if they wanted to is the packaging the frozen raw food is delivered in. Inside the delivery box is a large amount of polystyrene rather than recyclable matting. Surrounding the polystyrene is meters upon meters of non recyclable shrink wrap. Then covering the product itself is frozen water filled plastic.
Surely there is a better way? If companies that supply frozen ready meals direct can be more environmentally friendly with their packaging then surely Akela can be too?
““Personalised” Advent Calendar ”
My dog absolutely loved Akela 80:20 and all the treats, so I thought I would get her the “personalised” advent calendar ready for Christmas. How disappointed was I to find the personalised aspect was a sticker with her name stuck to the OUTSIDE of the packaging. Once I open this, all personalised elements are gone. I ask Akela Wholeprey what is the point of this? I can’t believe you would lower yourselves to this level. Your products are usually outstanding. ????
